Rose Pastor Stokes sentenced for espionage...

Item # 699687

June 01, 1918

EVENING TRIBUNE, San Diego, June 1, 1918

* Rose Pastor Stokes prison sentence
* Espionage Act of 1917 violation - WWI
* American socialist activist - writer
* Communist Party of America co-founder

The front page has a six column headline: "SENTENCE MRS. STOKES" with subhead. (see images) Surprisingly this issue is in good condition being from the "wood pulp" era. Very hard to find issues that are not totally fragile from this era in paper. Rare as such.
Complete with 14 pages, small library stamp within the masthead, small library label on the front page, generally very nice.
